Since the 1970s, community ecologists have relied on two theories to explain the role that species interactions play in Earth's astonishing biological diversity. An SFI working group takes steps to integrate those two theories.
SFI External Professor Simon DeDeo and co-authors are recipients of the 2018 Cozzarelli Prize, awarded by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, for their paper “Individuals, institutions, and innovation in the debates of the French Revolution.”
When only two things interact, the outcome is usually easily to predict. But what happens when you add a third — or fourth, or fifth, or more — component to the mix? The effects of such higher-order interactions can be difficult to forecast, and are the subject of a working group that meets this week at SFI.
The new book Pertussis: Epidemiology, Immunology, and Evolution, edited by former SFI Omidyar Fellow Samuel Scarpino and Pejman Rohani, is the first major aggregation of interdisciplinary whooping-cough research in decades.
New SFI research explores the unintended consequences of removing aboriginal people from their lands, with big implications for a more sustainable future.
The Santa Fe Institute again has ranked among the world's top science and technology and transdisciplinary think tanks.
A working group meeting February 4-6 begins to develop a generalizable theory about the role of information in group conflict.
A working group meets to identify the mechanims that drive different species to make different social choices — band together or go it solo — during times of food shortage.
